These guys make "Jersey Shore" look goodIt's the week of "Jersey Shore," and yet those morons weren't the worst people on TV... at least not yet. Let's give them time, shall we? In the meantime, see who did make the cut.
Ashley ("Real Housewives of New Jersey")
We've never been particularly big fans of Jacqueline's spoiled, insufferable daughter and her hair-pulling antics, and her attitude about her stepdad and her entitled feelings toward having a car really rub us the wrong way. But not buying your mom a Christmas gift, or even making her something, so you could buy stuff for your car instead? That's beyond obnoxious.
Arianna ("LA Ink")
She's living rent-free in Kat's amazing place, with the only stipulation that this girl (a fan of Kat's who wrote her a letter about taking care of a sick mother and then dealing with a drug addiction) work at one of Kat's many ventures. But instead of working, she goofs around taking pictures, talking to mannequins, forgetting how to count, and text-messaging constantly. Her only defense is that she thought she'd just be hanging out with Kat all day long. Really? That's what you really thought?
Danielle ("Famous Food")
This week, her main crime was repeatedly quitting work early and going to get Botox while everyone else actually tried to make a restaurant work. And then when Jake called for a check so they could pay a sign guy, the megalomaniac ex-Real Housewife refused, saying that she was in complete control of the money, and in turn explained that was her plan for running the restaurant. If there's no sign and no kitchen (which was shut down because of code issues), there's not going to be a restaurant.
Cathy ("Dance Moms")
She refuses to ride with everyone, won't stay and cheer for the other hard-working girls in the competition, complains incessantly about Abby's choreography, brags about her own dance studio, and then has no faith that her child can even do Abby's routine. Just do us all a favor and go home already, because your kid doesn't even really want to be there.

Brendon ("Big Brother")
He may think he's some sort of genius for "faking out" people by taking Rachel off the block and not himself, but he's not -- no matter how many times he mentions his PhD studies. But he made the list this week because his move left us with Rachel. And not just regular annoying Rachel, but really, really obnoxious Rachel, who is going to whine and cry until we are forced to throw objects at our televisions.
Danielle. She thinks that WordPerfect is still a thing, hires a sous-chef without approval from anyone, doesn't understand how to make a menu, refuses to acknowledge deadlines or take responsibility for her own actions, and also can't comprehend that someone else can go to a bank and get checks if that person's name is on the account. Yeah, that's totally who we'd want running our restaurant.
